UCSB Versus USCSanta Barbara, CA - UCSB hosted USC in a midweek WWLL Central Region game in Spud Harder Stadium, most recently the site of the NCAA Division One Men's Soccer Championship, The College Cup. The Gauchos  blanked the Trojans in an 11-0 second half that gave 8th ranked UCSB a 18-4 win. UCSB outshot the Trojans 14-9 in the first half but led only 7-4 at the break. The Gauchos came out firing in the second half and outshot USC 24-5 during the 30 minute period. Overall UCSB outshot USC 38-14. Junior goalie Jeni Centner (Tustin, CA) and the UCSB defense earned the second half shutout of the Trojans. Centner had 4 of her game 7 saves in the second half and the only other USC shot in the second half was forced wide by the Gaucho defense. The play everyone saw from UCSB during the second half is the way the Gauchos can play and the way for them to play more often.

Lindsay Remigio (Syosset, NY) quarterbacked the UCSB offense and finished with 2 goals and 4 assists. The sophomore attacker had a first half goal and then in the second half got her teammates involved in the offense with her 4 assists going to three different players. Maegan Cruse (San Diego, CA) was the recipient of two of the scoring passes while Ashley Antoon-Algieri (San Ramon, CA) and Abby Eastwood (Rumson, NJ) were another two Gauchos getting feeds from Remigio and converting them into goals. 

"That is the goal to assist ratio and selfless play we need out of at least one of our low attackers every game to be successful," commented UCSB head coach Paul Ramsey about Remigio's performance.  

"We need the 0 goal and 4 assist or 1 goal and 4 assist or 2 goal and 4 assist type of attacker in our offense."

Eastwood had 2 goals and 2 assists and scored her 1st goal of the season. The talented freshman is 4th on the team with 10 assists but had only taken 4 shots this season until going 2 for 2 on scoring attempts tonight.  

"There have been many times Abby has given up the ball to someone else on the way to goal when I think she could have kept going to shoot it," said Ramsey, "but she is the kind of player that just wants to make plays and isn't all that worried about her goal total."

Eastwood got her goals today off cuts to feeds and used the Remigio pass and a Cruse pass to get into the goal column.  Ramsey believes Eastwood can dodge to score too, though, and when that starts happening it will be fun to watch.

Ashley Antoon-Algieri (San Ramon, CA) led all scorers with 5 goals while Remigio had the points total high with 6 points on her 2 goals and 4 assists. Centner and Eastwood had 5 ground balls apiece while freshman Katie Hubbert (San Jose, CA) had 3 draw controls.

UCSB improved to 6-4 overall and 2-0 in WWLL Central play. The Gauchos are tied for first place with Cal Poly SLO (5-3, 2-0). Conveniently the 6th ranked Mustangs come to town this Saturday to face UCSB in a 1:00pm matchup on the UCSB turf. The winner of WWLL Central receives an automatic qualifier spot in the WWLL Championship Tournament April 16th - 17th. UCSB is hosting the event. The semifinals and the final will be played in Harder Stadium.
